meditating on - WHAT HELD YOU ON THE CROSS JESUS ?






 

WHAT HELD YOU ON THE CROSS
by Michael O'Brien and Hamm

I know You--I've seen You all my life
A Figure on a crucifix, a Death without a fight
You're hanging there upon a cross just by Your hands and feet
The picture's clear, but the story is incomplete…

So what was it, that led You to that tree?
What made You lay Your body down to save someone like me?
So though it's true, I know that You were God inside a man…
So I guess sometimes it's hard to understand…

What held You on the cross when You could have walked away ?
I see what You have done, and I just have to say
What held You on the cross was more than just the nails
With all the pain and suffering, and all that You had lost…
Your love for me could only be what held You on the cross

You saw me--I guess You must have known
My life would be in darkness, so You and You alone would bear the stripes,
The crown of thorns, and all humility…
Lord, I see myself, but it's hard for me to see

What held You on the cross when You could have walked away?
I see what You have done, and I just have to say
What held You on the cross was more than just the nails
With all the pain and suffering, and all that You had lost
Your love for me could only be what held you on the cross.

I don't deserve Your mercy, still You loved me just the same
You died for me, and yet, and yet it's hard to know…

What held You on the cross when You could have walked away ?
I see what You have done, and I just have to say
What held You on the cross was more than just the nails
With all the pain and suffering, and all that You had lost
Your love for me could only be what held you on the cross.
Your love for me could only be what held you on the cross.
